Adam Greene specializes in health information privacy and security laws, using his experience as a former regulator to help clients understand how they can permissibly leverage their health data, bring their information security programs into compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule, and respond to potential breach incidents. He works with healthcare providers, health plans, cloud services providers, health IT companies, and financial institutions to navigate HIPAA and the patchwork of other federal and state health information laws. His work ranges from applying health information laws to new technologies, such as AI and machine learning, to working with organizations to analyze complex privacy and security incidents involving health data under federal and state breach notification laws.
Before joining DWT, Adam worked on HIPAA and the HITECH Act at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in its Office of General Counsel and Office for Civil Rights. He drafted and negotiated the first HIPAA financial settlement agreements on behalf of the government, and assisted with implementing the HITECH Act and drafting the first HIPAA Breach Notification Rule. He also advised the Department on applying HIPAA to a variety of technologies, such as texting, cloud computing, and national health information exchange.
